Thought I would start a thread for a specific surgery date. Sometimes the threads get too long to navigate.

Hi Kay07! Are you excited? Nervous? My doc asked me those questions and I said with all honesty “No, I feel prepared and determined” but in the quiet of the night when I have trouble sleeping, I scroll through these posts and do get a bit nervous. I’m having trouble adjusting to my preop diet. I have to admit I miss my nightly glass of red wine.

Another May 14th checking in. I miss my dark chocolate but I have to admit that I’m really not that hungry anymore. I just wish I had more energy. Less than 900 calories a day is taking it’s toll.

Not nervous at all yet. I am sure I will be as it draws closer, but I’m so committed it feels more like a relief than anything else.

I’ve been on a low cal low carb diet for a few months now in preparation of this, and can’t say I miss things all that much? I have been having so much fun experimenting with new recipes so maybe it’s kept my mind off it.

Although I do miss wine!

I've created a secret Facebook group for May sleevers. In order for it to be secret I can only add "friends" or I can add people using their email. So if you are interested you can either post your email or DM me with it. https://www.facebook.com/groups/210152776255190/

Another suggestion was to change the group name and make it closed so that it is searchable, then once members have joined change it to secret. I am just not comfortable with the world knowing about my surgery.

      Happy Friday!
      Went to the surgeon this week for my 9 month follow up, a little early. I haven't seen him at my other follow ups (always a PA), besides the one time he called afterwards, but this time he stopped in and made a point to congratulate me. He said I'm doing amazing and to keep up the good work. I've shaved 25 points off my BMI, and down 142lbs at 8 months post op.
      I'm starting to really feel normal, not like a bariatric patient. I don't know if that's a good thing or bad thing. While I still have good habits, I don't think its  "hard work" anymore. I feel that I have truly changed my lifestyle. My new normal feels really good!
      Hope everyone is doing well.
      Much love,
      Ash

        Congratulations Ash!! That is amazing. I am so happy for you. woot woot :450_trophy:

      2. GreenTealael

        Congrats! I too feel *normal*

        It may be a good thing, I never wanted to struggle at this, and the most successful VETs don't appear to be struggling either...

      3. FluffyChix

        I'm so happy for you!! Congrats Ash on your HUGE accomplishment girlie!!! I'm so thrilled you've learned new ways!!! So glad you feel normal! You are so beautiful!!!

        And I completely agree with Tea, the most successful VETs don't appear to struggle. They just seem to have settled into their lifestyle and live it, day in, day out.

        I also wanna be that girl. :)

        Muah!

      Saw the surgeon yesterday. He is very pleased with my loss thus far. I am averaging about 10 lbs a month. Turns out my nutritionist and my surgeon have vastly differing ideas on how many calories I should be eating right now. Nut put me on 1K a day. Surgeon said nope, they are wrong, go to 800/day. Too bad I have been following what the Nut advised. I could have lost more weight already. Oh well, I will do it now! I am also going to add another day of working out to help break this stall I have been in since 8/28. I am very happy as this week I was able to get into a size XL shirt and I am wavering on pants sizes, but I am wearing a lot of size 18 that are too big or are getting too big. The inches are still dropping off nicely. I saw my parents for the first time after a long time this past weekend (they live out of state) and my Dad who never says anything gave me some super nice compliments. My sister also did...her words as we were trekking through the airport on a long upward ramp were along the lines of "Before the mind was willing but the body wasn't. Now your mind and body are in sync. Before we would have had to have stopped at least once and now you aren't even phased by this." What a great thing to have someone recognize.

        I was there yesterday too! My appointment was at 1:30pm. And its crazy that they told you 800 calories per day, when they told me 1k yesterday, but I've got my own agenda lol.

      2. SleeveinIL

        Were you up here??? I am sorry I missed you. My appointment was at 1:15 so it seems we may have just missed each other!!! When do you see him for the 9 month? Maybe we could meet up and say hi!

      3. AshAsh1

        Oh my gosh, that's a gag... we literally just missed each other! It was technically my 9 month appointment, even though I'm only 8 months post op. I missed my 6 month, so I went a month early to my 9 month. I probably won't be back up until my year appointment, but if I come sooner, I'll be sure to let you know!
